When you find a stock you might be interested in, you can quickly go beyond the general snapshot and take a deeper dive into the company’s financial statistics and other data. You can either scroll down manually to access each section, or skip directly to a specific section here with these tabs.
Here in the Statistics section, you’ve got the annual yield.
It’s dividend growth over the last five years.
The current value of the company’s outstanding shares.
The company’s share price or general market value compared to their earnings per share.
The beta calculation, which divides the relative return of the stock by the movement of the market’s mean value. This helps give us a general indication of how volatile the stock is, with results greater than one often signaling riskier stocks with higher yields, and results less than one often signaling less risky stocks, though with lower yields.
And you can see the EPS, or earnings per share, how much of the company’s net income is devoted to its common stock shares.
And we’re just getting started. We can scroll down further to see a brief description of the company, as well as its International Securities ID number.
We can see a graph of the last 10 years of stock prices. And hover over the line to get more specific.
Here in the Performance Comparison section, you’ll see a snapshot of the company’s returns over the last year, over the last five years, as well as where it ranks in comparison to other companies in its industry, in comparison to all of the companies in the NASDAQ 100, and in comparison to all companies listed in the Standard and Poor’s 500.
And Moning shows you a graph of the company’s Dividend history as well, what its annual dividend has been each year divided by its stock price at the time. How many years a positive dividend has gone interrupted. How often its dividends are paid out to stock holders (you can also hover over the frequency to see what months the payouts come). And the date in which the stock will start trading without the value of its next dividend payment. And if you expand the dividend details section here, you can drill down even further to see specifically what the dividend per share has been on each date it was paid out.
We’ll cover the more advanced data in another video, but as you can see, Moning gives you incredible, easy-to-understand transparency on each company’s stock, enabling you to gather critical data – both in terms of a company’s current status, as well as its history – so you can make well-informed decisions when it comes to evolving your portfolio.
